Robin's Zodiac Zone 20th Year Birthday Week

So many of you have been with me for 19 or 20 years! Robin's Zodiac Zone was born in an "aha" moment while I was laying down on Scarborough Beach in Maine on July 22nd of 1999. The first website was created later that day, by my 9 year old son and me! Radio forecast slowly worked their way into my radio show on WCYY on weekends and in the spring of 2000 when I moved to the alternative mornings show, I started doing 1, then 2, then 3 forecasts a morning to meet everyone's morning commute time. Thank you for all the fun and mostly for your trust.

I tried to abandon this blog once or at least to minimize the time I spent on it. It didn't work for me. This is something I am supposed to do. It's part of my routine and my process and my service to others. So Robin's Zodiac Zone goes on and on and on...

Mercury retrograde is full on. If necessary, find some patience and remember all things take their own time usually regardless of how much we'd like to push or speed things up or know the answers. Mercury is now in Cancer and retrograde until the 31st, so hang on and maybe get together with an old, trusted friend.

Love and Peace,
Robin

Sunday: Pisces Moon, Sun conjunct Mercury retrograde, and Venus opposite Pluto. And that only covers part of what's up in the heavens and on earth today. Taking a versatile, laid back approach may be helpful. Plans B and C may need to activate. Relationship realizations are occurring for some (Cancer/Capricorn/Scorpio/Taurus for example) and affecting others. Today's theme is how to find some harmony and peace during a potentially uncertain or stirred up time. Wear Pink.

Monday: Waning Moon in Pisces until 6:02 am EDT. A short void Moon from 4:34 am to 6:02 am could make us forgetful of what the day's schedule or plan is. Aries Moon moves us into action with a fire burning inside, passion or drive, maybe a sense of adventure and newness as the Moon and Sun align right at 4:34 am EDT, at the tail end of water signs Pisces/Cancer! This is kind of a final bow for the water sign element of the past month. Emotions are strongly stirred this morning. It could be a romantic or melancholy thing, either way. Mercury retrograde in Cancer tinges the whole movement into a new business week. Feeling protective, defensive, or missing old times are some potential effects. Tonight, Leo birthdays begin with the Sun's shift at 10:50 pm EDT, 7:50 pm Pacific or adjust for your time zone. Leo time could be uplifting or motivating if you've been laying down or feeling down. Today's color is Red. And Robin's Zodiac Zone turns 20!!

Tuesday: Aries Moon lines up with Mars and Jupiter. This inspires us toward new and inventive things, toward leading and initiating with optimism and faith. Moon squares Saturn to remind us of protocols and the earthly nature of what needs to be done. Today's color is Orange.

Wednesday: Aries Moon for starters, void at 10:48 am to 5:42 pm EDT, therefore anything you can do early is more reliably timed. Planets in Cancer/Capricorn square the Moon and struggles for example power plays or struggle to get motivated are possible. Effort is required to move through whatever needs taking care of. Taurus Moon follows at 5:42 pm EDT with another square to the Sun in Leo. Our minds and emotions need some adjusting or alignment. The pulls or pushes in alternate directions is significant today and covers a lot of ground from the earth to the fire signs. Fire burns earth so dominant and powerful forces may be pushing other relevant and important energies down. Some may steamroll, forgetting or ignoring others or the effects of their actions. Now for the good stuff. Venus and Mercury retrograde meet for a loving stroll down memory lane. It's a good night to visit a favorite place or to reconnect with a lover or a friend. Today's color is Green.

Thursday: Taurus Moon meets Uranus. It's a monthly occurrence and will be for many years. It can bring out the bumps in the road or the earth shattering realizations we sometimes need in order to move forward or decide things. Uranus is inventive and could help with extra-ordinary solutions to persistent problems or questions. Adjustments will be required. Mars and Jupiter align in fire signs showing us the way. Thinking and action come into harmony. Notice what inspires you to act. Try not to go overboard with anything especially spending. This is optimistic, but also keep reality in check. Mars also squares the Moon and there could be an agitated feeling, for a reason that can or cannot be understood right now. Practice calming. Today's color is Lavender.

Friday: Taurus Moon straight through until 2:29 am EDT Saturday (or late Friday west coast times). Mercury retro, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto align with the Moon. Situations or our minds may feel more at ease and harmonious today. This Moon and her planets organize us for what we need to do even  if it's not easy. Today's color is Pink.

Saturday: Taurus Moon void 12:28 to 2:29 am EDT. Gemini Moon for the weekend. It's social and changeable and aligned with Sun in Leo. Interpersonal interactions, group meetings, parties and performances are favored. Venus moves to Leo at 9:54 pm EDT for many festive vibes in the next 4 weeks. The urge to shop may overcome you even with Mercury retrograde reminding us not to overspend or decide lightly. Today's color is Gold.

Robin's Zodiac Zone July 14th-20th, 2019: Capricorn Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon

Choose your adventures at Wild Vibes in South Berwick on Saturday, July 27th. Info here!

Lunar eclipse in Capricorn surfs us through the rest of the month! Tuesday, July 16th 5:38 pm EDT.

Sunday: Sagittarius Moon void of course starts us off. The Moon has no major aspects with planets. The Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto and the Full Moon will meet Pluto on Tuesday. Pluto relates to the mysterious, secretive, hidden or repressed aspects of ourselves or of situations. This eclipse is likely to bring many things up for resolving or facing. Capricorn Moon moves in at 7:05 pm EDT. Black is today's color.

Monday: The nearly Full Moon in Capricorn aligns with Uranus in Taurus today. It could be a wild ride with some unforeseen development. Remember, the unexpected is not always a bad thing. Be ready for a change in system, organization or plan. Today's color is Green.

Tuesday: Lunar eclipse with this Full Moon in Capricorn at 5:38 pm EDT. Eclipses powerfully intensify and magnify, with effects extending for 6 months to one year. Events of this eclipse time hold great power and longevity. An eclipse accelerates what was set to occur. You may have to move into action or decide something much more quickly or differently than anticipated. In some cases, turns of events will feel like fate or like something you never could have foreseen or planned for. Love, business, fears and repressed feelings or memories, and the approaches you will now need to take are all parts of the eclipse outlook. Void Moon 5:38 pm EDT on. Take the night carefully and slowly. White is today's color.

Wednesday: Venus opposes Saturn overnight. In the midst of this eclipse, these planets indicate relationship decisions and realities that need to be faced or confronted. This could be great, like an engagement or difficult like a parting. There will be good reason to act and not wait, even with Mercury retrograde. Still, check to see you're not acting on pure impulse. You may be pushed to do something you thought could wait or that you fear. The Moon opposes retrograde Mercury. Decision making may feel uncertain, yet necessary. Talk real terms. Get anything in writing that should be. Protect your interests and also those you care about. Do honest business. Moon squares Uranus for vibrations that began earlier this week. Problem solving and resolutions are needed. Put the effort in. There's really no other good choice. Aquarius Moon 5:19 am EDT through all of the day and evening. Today's color is Blue.

Thursday: Aquarius Moon opposite Mars overnight 1:50 am EDT to be precise. This opposition is in fixed signs indicating persistence or stubbornness. Moon in Aquarius has vision and inspiration which leads to original thinking. Mars in Leo is courageous and proud. Leaders may feel confident and forge ahead or rally others (hopefully with the right intentions. This could go either way depending on a leaders' mindset.) Moon and Jupiter align in fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius at 11:53 am EDT and then it's void Moon time. The Moon/Jupiter trine is open minded and expansion oriented. Educational or travel plans or acceptances may come through. If you're applying to something or committing to a program or trip, take Mercury retro into consideration and double check and edit or reread everything of note. Venus aligns with Neptune today in the water signs for sentimentality, romance, healing, nurturing and reconciliations. Today's color is Purple.

Friday: Aquarius Moon void of course from 11:53 am EDT on Thursday until 5:19 pm EDT today. It's a long void time, a transitional, sometimes foggy or unclear period, and major decisions or spending that can wait should be on the back burner for now. Relax, clean, draw or write for pleasure, allow your mind to open and be free of problems, perhaps do some meditation or even nap. Tasks should feel routine and not complex. If you hit stumbling blocks, step back for now. Mercury retrogrades back into Cancer, retracing that threshold crossed on June 26th. Notice if business from then is coming back around. Approach with ease and curiosity rather than pressure. Family reconnections or business may be coming up in the days just ahead. Pisces Moon 5:19 pm EDT on, for a take it easy evening. Today's color is Light Green.

Saturday: Pisces Moon aligns with Uranus in Taurus. Emotions may be up and down, more than usual. Creative bursts and/or awakening of feelings or self expression are likely today. Wear Blue.

Robin's Zodiac Zone July 7th-13th, 2019: Mercury Retrograde in Leo

Mind Your Business
Easy Does It
Review with care
Call a long lost friend
Use discretion with words
Revisit a meaningful place
Yearning for simple or past times is natural now

As the retrograde begins Sunday evening, this is your refresher. Many of the words beginning with 'Re' become relevant (that's not one of the re words though!). Reconsider, recall, replenish, reconnect. When in doubt, wait it out.

Sunday: Mercury retrograde begins at 7:14 pm in Leo, and will eventually move back into Cancer retracing events of the past two weeks. Virgo Moon connects with 5 planets. Personal and professional business needs attention. In Virgo form, stay very grounded and realistic with expectations and solutions. Be wary of anything seeming too 'ideal' or frivolous. Void Moon 12:50 pm so best decisions are timed for morning/before 12:50 pm EDT. Today's color is Navy Blue.

Monday: Delays are likely now, unless there's been a long delay lately. If that's been case, action may re-start on something of note such as building or getting back to a dormant project. Creativity can peak with Mercury retrograde. Maybe you will go deep into your process and/or reconnect with your right brain, the free and artistic side. At 2:07 am EDT, the Moon cruised to Libra. Mercury meets Mars and Venus aligns with Uranus. Libra Moon is in harmony with Mars and Mercury which can help significantly. Libra Moon wants peace while Mercury and Mars can stir up trouble or controversy. Today is an especially bad day to engage in anything that could lead to an argument or fight. Venus and Uranus together hold surprises related to family and relationship. Practice being objective and seeing personal situations in perspective. Wear Pink, a color for healing, romance, and a color of the heart.

Tuesday: Can you believe it's one week already since the solar eclipse New Moon? Now is the halfway point to our next eclipse. Developments are likely, yet cannot be forced.  After an eclipse, more than usual, we see things take their own course, often not the one we planned. Squares in the zodiac and the Sun opposite Saturn all indicate a day of challenge, trials and/or needing to openly take responsibility and own up. Justice is a theme and a key to this Libra Moon day. Moon void from 3:36 pm to 5:29 am EDT on Wednesday. Today's color is Silver.

Wednesday: Scorpio Moon begins 5:29 am EDT and goes on to square Mars and Mercury, oppose Uranus and align with Venus. Note that those are the 4 planets of Monday's forecast and the pattern continues to be relevant. There's strong energy around personal and relationship matters. Mercury is retrograde and it's a tough time for a debate. The Moon and Venus do offer opportunities for softening and forgiveness, but we may have to reach far inward to find the courage to surrender and let ego go. If you're being stubborn and unyielding, is that actually serving you or could it be holding you back? If life is peachy, romance and passion are in the air tonight. Wear Indigo, and follow your intuition above all else.

Thursday: Mars and Uranus square in Leo and Taurus, fixed signs. Ego creates issues and makes a difficult or unexpected situation even harder. Letting go is necessary. Controlling behavior or unwilling attitudes arise and at minimum there is friction, while at maximum it could be what you call a complete breakdown or upheaval. The Tower card in the tarot deck comes to mind. We must let the tower crumble and rebuild, in some situations. Meanwhile, grand trine in the water signs is fortunate and soothing. Moon, Sun and Neptune in each water sign offer harmony, forgiveness and healing. You may experience or witness one or both of these aspects. Remember Mercury is retrograde and slow, mindful words and actions minimize damages such as hurt and error in judgment. Void Moon starts 8:28 pm EDT (even more reason to use caution and awareness). Wear Black for protection.

Friday: Scorpio Moon, void of course until 11:05 am EDT, favors a slow morning focused in meditation, quiet contemplation and reflection, possibly gardening or exercise. Wait on shopping, spending, discussing, and deciding on anything of significance. Sagittarius Moon shifts the vibe to "let's go" or maybe to a good book. Later the social fires burn into the night as the Moon is in harmony with Mars in Leo. Outspoken people may call attention to themselves. We may have to overlook certain things and not take them personally. Today's color is Red.

Saturday: Full Moon in Capricorn is on the 16th and is a lunar eclipse. Mercury is retrograde. This is a potent, eventful, potentially stressful and provoking period of time. It harkens back to 19 summers ago. Notice if the summer of 2000 is relevant in patterns happening now. Maybe this is a second chance or opportunity to resolve the past. Sagittarius Moon is waxing and the feelings surrounding the eclipses are strengthening too. The Moon meets Jupiter and everything may seem bigger including spending. Yet it's not a good time for major purchases. Can it wait? Parties may be really fun and also could go overboard or tip the balance between good times and regrets. Moderation is called for. The Moon squares Neptune and we could be in denial or deluded. Instincts over words where trust is concerned. Wear Purple today.
